Don’t you just love tapes? As an avid vinyl collector there is something beautiful about old technology. Why do people still typeset work on old presses? The charm of the process and the outcome can’t seem to be replicated in this digital age. There is something very satisfying about technology that people collect that we don’t necessarily need. I came across this site and had a browse through the archives. Some of the tapes have a real charm to them. Simplistic, bold and colorful.

The inspiration of old technology and processes can be seen in many studios portfolios. Take Experimental Jetsets Lost Format Series or the vector work of studio Neubau for example.

Above is just a few examples of beautiful functional design i grabbed from the site. Visit the site and take a look.
